Skip to comments.Ukraine crisis: Russian Lada 'chases tank in Sloviansk'
Posted on 04/16/2014 8:24:21 AM PDT by McGruff
Footage posted online purports to show pro-Russian activists in a Lada confronting a Ukrainian tank.
The car's occupants pursue the tank across a field - apparently in the Donetsk town of Sloviansk - and instruct its driver to "turn the engine off".
Eventually, the tank driver shakes the hand of one of the crowd and switches the engine off.
However, an argument ensues, with the Russian speakers demanding to know the tank driver's "mission".
The video, which cannot be independently verified, was uploaded on 14 April
Laughter at this point is perverse.
I just rec’d this post:
“Dear People Of Kharkiv!
Today, there is a real risk of capture and terror of our Kharkov!
I ask who is not indifferent to respond and help. Both Word and deed!
Today our border guards detained a bus with 2 titukami and a team of them. The city merged! The weekend is preparing provocations and captures the district departments in Donetsk!
Self defense at the meeting it was decided to set up roadblocks on the Russian belgorodke of willow. In order not to miss the provocateurs and fighters, and so request pograncy because the fear of attack from the rear!
That is: there are Foundation blocks and tap for their installation you need: sand and bags for the packing of bus station 2 x diesel Spotlight interphones stretching Hedgehog (or welder, the material will give) helmets, broneelety list will be complemented by others!
We are supported by the SBU, the Governor, the public prosecutor’s Office and 20% of the police (now there are negotiations about the machine gun from the man from Ssu).
All posts on the block self-defense is with her arms allowed.
All the tracks are the main transport artery before the weekend, ostaûtâ open direction Lipc and Volchansk. All who can and wants to protect their city unite!”
REPOST! (Translated by Bing)
Would have been even funnier if that tank had put a round into those village drunks driving that clown car.
A tank defeated by a used car?
The tank crew missed a chance to have some fun. Bring the main gun to bear on the car,don’t shoot them -just enjoy their reaction.
It’s just another sign that the Ukrainian military won’t kill their fellow Ukrainians on behalf of the Western Ukrainian Banderists issuing orders to them from Kiev.
A Lada Beat A Tank.
They’re laughing so hard in Moscow and feeling optimistic about the situation.
The man who is smiling is President Putin.
Stupid. Absolutely stupid.
Why the hell would anyone be willing to help the Ukrainians at this point.
I don’t see a Lada. All I see is a Niva.
UKRAINE SOVEREIGNTY.. or being between a rock and a hard place!
PUTIN a few hours after the Ukrainian government announced an anti-terrorist operation, addressed the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki -moon asking to condemn anti-terrorist decision of Ukrainian Gov’t integrity of nation which he considers “ unconstitutional.” Also in Kramatorske, Ukrainian troops landed at the local airport, according to the official statement Kyiv, took under control.
Local residents, who built a barricade there had no clashes with Ukrainian military. According to some residents, the city drive tanks with Ukrainian army.
However, during a telephone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President said that because of the escalation of the conflict the country is on the brink of civil war.
Its just another sign that the Ukrainian military wont kill their fellow Ukrainians
Yes. And we have seen this weekend Russians are willing to kill and assault Ukrainians inside Ukraine. You keep good company, FRiend.
Can you imagine the howls coming from our fascist comrades in the Kremlin here, if that happened? They'd be falling over themselves running to the UN.
A Lada. It could have been worse. It could have been a Trabant.
I expect many more incidents like this.
How many of these soldiers, Russian and Ukrainian, are drunk most of the time?
Proof that Russians are in Ukraine. That looks like Vladimir Putin dressed all in black chasing that tank.
And George Soros driving it . . . no wonder Putin showed up.
